HEY!!! “It’s been awhile” Im back baby! My Youtube channel has had me a little preoccupied as of late.. But enough with the pleasantries. Lets talk 2016! The Year Comic Book Films really kick into overdrive! And nerds and Nerdettes around the world lose their minds and bowels over all the awesomeness! Today, I want to discuss two in particular.. DEADPOOL and BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Im really excited for BvS. i’m a huge Batman fan.. (not at all happy with the whole Affleck casting… but.. we’ll see.) Its going to be a major movie event! Two of the greatest Heroes of our time, together for the first time EVER on the big screen! Its literally going to be EPIC… BUT…Truth be told, at this moment.. I’m more hyped for DP, then BvS!
Yes… Both films are literally due out within months of each other next year! DP in FEBUARY and BvS in March (if I’m not mistaken.. Unless they moved it again!)
So How could I be more excited for Deadpool?! You ask!? Well, lets look at some facts, shall we..
Two years ago, SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2013, Zack Snyder and WB announced BATMAN vs. SUPERMAN! Summer 2015! HORAY!! Oh wait hold on! Did we say 2015?!? Sorry. We meant 2016!
They finished the film late 2014.. That’s right, they finished it late last year… Last fucking year! So, here we are now little over one year away from a movie we have been waiting for our entire lives, and the only things we’ve had to wet our appitates for the past two years have been… Photos….. STILL PHOTOS! Pretty awesome photos.. But, PHOTOS! It’s like..
“Hey folks! Your worried we cast a talentless actress as WONDER WOMAN? Well worry no more… Here’s a photo!”
“You wanna know what the Bat-Suit looks like?!?… Here’s a black and white photo!”
“Oh! You want to know who else is gonna be in the movie for a few minutes of the two and a half hour film?!.. Heres another one toned color Photo!”
“Had a problem with the Facebook Guy we got to play Lex Luthor?.. Well.. HERES ANOTHER FUCKING BLACK/WHITE PHOTO!”
(SDCC: 2014) “Oh, you want to hear a little something about the film from the stars themselves.. FUCK YOU! THEY’RE JUST GONNA STAND HERE AND SMILE AT YOU FOR A FEW SECONDS! And here’s a short scene that you’ll only ever see from fucked up camera phone angles!”
Sure. The small glimpses are awesome and exciting… But that excitement fades over time. Yes! We are still about a year away from the films release, so I may be being over zealous in wanting more now.. But, come on… I think we’ve been waiting long enough.
On the other hand!
(Never thought I would EVER say this…) FOX, is doing everything right with hyping up DEADPOOL! Ryan Reynolds himself has been really playing the whole band in trying to get this thing going. Ever since SDCC ’14 and the “accidental” “Leak” of the digital test footage for a DP movie, That Reynolds participated in producing.
With the help of the overwhelming support of Fans behind him, Reynolds convinces the studio to get things moving!
(Writers Note: No doubt, thanks to the “Leak” FOX was convinced. But still, the studio held off from going 100% behind the film. Because they wanted to wait till after the release of X-MEN:DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and so, once that was the huge success it was. DP got the green light.)
Sure things went a little quiet after that. Then came word FOX was looking to recast COLLOSUS, for DP. Then Gina Corano joins in as ANGEL DUST, and soon after that. Reynolds releases a photo of him overseeing the making of the costume.
After that came the casting of DP’s love interest, COPY CAT, whose to be played by Morena Baccarn. Shortly there after we got this gem..
THE most accurate looking superhero costume for a feature film since, the first Chris Reeves SUPERMAN film, and the first SPIDERMAN! (SPOT ON!)
Then Came the back and forth amongst fans and film aficionados on whether or not the film should be R or PG-13! A lot of much smarter folks close to the film industry stated the film should be PG-13, whilst Fans rallied for a hard R version of DEADPOOL!
The studio themselves stating they were interested in a PG-13 film to appeal to a much wider audiance. Ryan kept fans up to date with the happenings all the way to just recently. On April 1st. With this truly awesome video..
Filming has already started. The cast looks great. The costume is magnificent. The story sounds awesome. I’m really looking forward to DEADPOOL! I can’t wait. That’s not to say I’m not at all excited about BvS.. But geez compare the marketing so far and really can anyone blame me for feeling the way I do at this moment. Who knows?!? DC/WB might put out something very soon that’s gonna get me more hyped. Word on the streets is that a BvS Trailer is supposed to hit screens during the release of MAD MAX:FURY ROAD! Lets hope that that’s true and DC can hook me back in. (I pray that it will be in freaking COLOR! For Pete’s sake!)
Well! That’s gonna do it for me and my nonsense! Hey, let me know what you think! Which film has you more excited at the moment? What do you think of my views? Do you think I’m bat-shit crazy?!
